White Dog and Steve were reviewing which cookies were going to be featured this Christmas. Nuka and Michael were deciding who needed to be on his holiday shopping list; and he was trying to convince his "Nuker" that the gifting solution was NOT to give everyone chicken jerky. Quinn and Puff and I were in the office electronically organizing the Christmas card list, and menu ideas for the Christmas Eve Open House. We had paused to send FB messages of Happy Hanukkah to several friends and TOWD excitedly tapped my knee. "Can we watch this?" he asked nose pointing to a video. "I LOVE holiday music!" So we did. The others heard us laughing and came in to see what tickled our funny bone.
"Please, White Dog," her brother pleaded. "Can we share a little seasonal delight with our blog friends? You have to admit, it IS pretty cute..." "Well," WD responded, "I don't usually do cute but we did post the dancing Nut-ka yesterday, so as special favor to you and for only half of your next jerky treat, sure, let's do it."
"You are the best," replied Quinn and signalled me to hit the "Publish Post" button before she had a chance to change her mind.
Puff update: Our girl is getting braver every day with spending time interacting with TOWD and AWD; WD still intimidates her. Puff still is not ready for more than the most passing human touches...she will take pills from Steve but skitters away if he tries to pet her; Michael just sends her running; and she will come up and lean against me only if I pretend she is not there. SAWD does respond to her name and comes when called and listens when you talk to her but is very very shy. She asked to eat in the kitchen with the other pups instead of by herself next to her crate. Her appetite is good but she still has an absolutely chilling cough that seems to rip through her only at night. The vet has given us some herbal relaxing chews that makes her less nervous when these fits hit and we have some cough syrup that helps just a little. Thanks for your positive thoughts and prayers. Could you please continue to send healing energy?
